Neighborhood: Centro Storico

Today this is a well-known cinema, but it used to be a palazzo. It was built in 1400 for Cardinal Domenico Capranica and is one of the few buildings of its kind still standing. At the end of the XV secolo, architectural additions were made to the building, thus mixing medieval and Renaissance styles, as was fashionable at the time. The windows still have the cardinal's coat of arms.
